3 week adventure

The North Cape (aka Nordkapp) is a bucket list destination for motorcylists the world over, and Norway is a fascinating destination. Wild untamed countryside await you on this amazing Viking adventure, with plunging deep sided fjords, majestic peaks, stunning scenery and coastal splendour, contrasted by the vast open wilderness of the Arctic.

This tour starts from Harwich to Hook of Holland on an overnight sailing, via an overnght stop near Hamburg to the northern most point of Denmark for another overnight ferry to Bergen. Our ride next day is through scenery of jaw-dropping beauty as we ride our motorcycles alongside fjords where the still waters reflect the sky in a complete mirror image. On a clear, still day every bend is a major photo opportunity - it really is just sooo pretty. We spend the next night in a super hotel in Ulvik (where all the rooms overlook the magnificent Hardanger Fjord) before continuing to Geiranger (stopping at the superb Dalsnibba viewing platform over five thousand feet above the town) for a two-night stay, where a limited number of Fjord view rooms are available on request. On previous visits it was amazing to wake up, look out of the window from our superbly located hotel and be confronted by a view of such stupendous beauty.

This is one of the most extraordinary destinations in Norway and really is one of the highlights of this tour. Often described as "Probably the most beautiful place in the world", it’s all you expect Norway to be! A deep plunging fjord with an amazing mountain backdrop. It is from here we ride-out to the Atlantic Road, returning via the Trollstigen - a day out on the bike that you will never forget. A major engineering achievement that bridges a number of islands out into the Norwegian Sea, followed by twisty switchbacks, a cascading waterfall and a glacier at the top of the climb. Norway in all it's natural beauty explored by motorcycle. Truly a unique experience!

Leaving Geiranger we continue our exciting adventure riding northwards, leaving Fjordland behind. As we ride you will notice the scenery changes and becomes wilder and more rugged as we motorcycle onwards to Trondheim (the former capital of Norway with its famous Nideros Cathedral) and then onwards to Mo-i-Rana (known locally as the “Gateway to the Arctic”) situated halfway between the very north and the very south of Norway.

Entering the Arctic Circle the following morning, the next port of call is Sortland for three nights, which is our base to explore the Lofoten Islands and Vesteralen, and maybe a whale watching trip. We are then on our last leg to the North Cape, stopping at Tromso and Alta  (where we can visit the Tirpitz Museum at nearby Kafjord) before we reach our most northerly hotel at SkaidiIt is from here we will make our midnight sun ride-out to the North Cape, to see the sun skimming the horizon rather than dropping below it - astonishing!

All too soon it’s time for us to head south again, but remember this is Norway so the journey continues with great scenery all the way. After an overnight stopover at Lyngen Fjordwe continue to Narvik, then Mo-i-Rana via the Arctic Circle Visitor Centre, getting our passports stamped to prove we have been inside the Arctic Circle! From here it is on to Trondheim, followed by a stop north of Lillehammer before we leave Norway on the overnight ferry from Oslo to Copenhagen, continuing to the Hook of Holland for our overnight ferry back to Harwich via our last overnight stop near Hamburg.

From the mild southern Fjords to the wild coastal landscape and the vast open areas of the north, we have planned this tour to include all that Norway has to offer. It is a true motorcycle riding feast. Come and join us on this 3 week adventure to the northernmost point of continental of Europe.
